A Theoretical Study of the Measurement Effectiveness of Flexilevel Tests.
Lord, Frederic M.
A flexilevel test is found to be inferior to a peaked conventional test for measuring examinees in the middle of the ability range, superior for examinees at the extremes. Throughout the entire range of ability, a flexilevel test is much superior to any conventional test that attempts to provide accurate measurement at both extremes. See also ED 042 813. (Author)
